- Notes from February:
Reading Group resources from Brandon Tilley: Overview/Brain Dump Templates vs. Components Coupling and Cohesion JSX—nice but not required “Just don’t write spaghetti code”—okay, what should we write? Passing props Evented architectures Flux Re-render the world Performant with intelligent DOM diffing DOM as a rendering engine Optimizing with shouldComponentUpdate Recommended Material Rethinking Best Practices https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgVS-zXgMTk&hd=1 I recommend watching Pete Hunt’s Rethinking Best Practices if you watch or read nothing else. He talks a bit about React on a high level, but also focuses a lot on why they think the approaches they take are good ideas. Try not to let the giant fish tank distract you too much. Introduction to React https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxVg_s8xAms&hd=1 This video is a bit older and has some duplicate content, but covers the idea of a uni-directional data flow in a tiny bit more detail, and explains what benefits this has over a more traditional MVC architecture in client-side applications. Though the video length on YouTube is 1 hour 20 minutes, the main part of the talk is actually a bit under 30 minutes—there is a lot of Q&A. The diagram shown at ~3:30 will lead us into a discussion of the “Flux” architecture (maybe FB’s blog post on it will be out by the time we meet). Learning React """ The React site is pretty good; they have a decent tutorial you can follow if """ you wanna get some hands-on experience with React, and the rest of the docs are """ pretty solid. I found Thinking in React to be interesting and useful. https://github.com/BinaryMuse/wow-realm-status-react http://facebook.github.io/react/docs/tutorial.html http://facebook.github.io/react/docs/thinking-in-react.html Demo Applications WoW Realm Status https://github.com/BinaryMuse/wow-realm-status-react Fast Tab Switcher https://github.com/BinaryMuse/chrome-fast-tab-switcher Imgur Gallery Browser https://github.com/BinaryMuse/react-imgur-album-browser Imgsible It uses something similar to the Flux architecture with some changes. The readme has a bunch of notes. https://github.com/BinaryMuse/imgsible

_ Little Blue Book * interesting investment strategy. * build algo/simulation with Mac to test? * http://seekingalpha.com/article/363901-the-perils-of-backtesting-technical-strategies * data sources * how to avoid [survivorhip bias](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivorship_bias) in dataset * http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5774218/algorithmic-trading-simulator-benchmark-data * https://market-archive.appspot.com/ * http://quant.caltech.edu/historical-stock-data.html * testing libraries/service * http://gbeced.github.io/pyalgotrade/ * https://www.quantopian.com * this looks like the ticket ^^ provided it can choose stocks from external/"fundamental" info, not just provide a universe per criteriaset * https://www.quantopian.com/posts/how-i-wo - see comments * fundamental data: * https://www.quantopian.com/posts/using-the-fetcher-with-quandl * seems like the last comment is pertinent to testing little-blue-book; is it now possible? else try pyalgotrade? * related * "nifty thrifty" and F_score stat http://www.iii.co.uk/articles/88741/playing-long-game-turning-traders-investors * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_formula_investing
* Tough to understand some of the FRP papers due to haskell/FP terminology. Revisit Push/Pull FRP after functor/applicative/monoid review in March
- write comparison of: react/meteor/angular/ember runloop/coalesce/deps ?
- maybe there are 2 difference concerns here; push/rx/deps and batching updates
- that's a fair thing - i think some of the frameworks do both (angular, maybe meteor? idk the others)
